angies review


I received this book from the author for an honest review.

*Sigh* Master Anderson *Sigh* We finally get to see his POV  *sigh* This book………

When I saw that Red was changing up POv from Brie nd Thane I was a little nervous because they have been our characters all long in the series.  But then when I opened the book and began to read….happy times ahead.

We all met and loved Master Anderson from the very first time we met him.  How can you NOT love a sexy jokester?  But in our hearts we are all dying for him to find a love like Brie and Sir…..DYING I tell ya.  We know Amy destroyed him but we need our handsome Dom to move on with more than just a pet cat J

When we start reading this book we are seeing it from the wedding reception.  We are seeing Brad compare these women to Amy plus moving on with his life and new transition.  He is excited but nervous about the double responsibility he now has for the Training centers.  I loved seeing the “First Night” with the training subs.  It made me giggle and think back to the days of Brie, Mary and Lea.

When Master Anderson steps up and cares for our young Brie during her time with Sir, it made my heart love him even more!!  Seeing him want the best for his best friend and the love of his life made me just want to cuddle him even more!

The book moved Brie and Thane’s story forward but we didn’t get a lot of them.  This book was focusing on Brad and his new life and lady…..I was so excited at the final few chapters.  Now I am even more excite to read Tono’s book.  That Dom has my heart is a jumble of nerves as well……..

angies review


I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Ok so I was a nut and read this series way outta order so even though this is book 2 I read it 3rd.  SO I didn’t know what happened to Aylse when I read book 3 first….do you get my crazy mind?  LOL  SO to say I was excited to finally know what happened to Regina’s sister is an understatement.

Alys was the quiet daughter.  She was the peace keeper and the calmer of the diva Regina.  She wanted to find a love and have a family but she wanted to make her mark first.  She was a great surgeon and was not looking to settle down any time soon.  She has an interesting conversation with Regina’s future brother in law and is creeped out that he was hitting on her.  Hawt as he IS she wont be a 2nd choice.  She wants to be someone’s 1st and only choice.

James is not happy at all.  He is the 2nd son and due to the death of his brother, he is now the Duke.  Yes the same Duke family that Regina is marrying into.  And before you ask, yes James is a totally hottie like Bradford the brother in law…..can you see where this is headed?  Feisty woman from the future challenging and engaging an old school Duke while falling head over heels in love with each other.

I laughed a lot of Alys use f “every day” language in the 1800’s.  They certainly were confused by her and she was at a total lose for them.  I am waiting for Rose’s book.  She is a great side character who will most definitely get some great guidance from Alys.

about the author

Dawn Brower works as a substitute teacher and enjoys the flexibility it gives her to concentrate on her other endeavors.

Growing up she was the only girl out of six children. She is a single mother of two teenage boys; there is never a dull moment in her life. Reading books is her favorite hobby. While she loves all genres she focuses most of her writing on historical and contemporary romance.

There are always stories inside her head; she just never thought she could make them come to life. That creativity has finally found an outlet.

#review – To Save Him by Jade Jamison



Title: To Save Him

Author: Jade C Jamison

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 21



A new look at the May-December romance…

She said she would do anything to save him…but will it cause her to lose herself?

What if she was wrong? What if Brandon Abbott is not who he says he is?

Kimberly Cooper’s emotional compass has been off since her bitter divorce and the death of her oldest son, so when young soldier Brandon shows up at her door, she invites him to be part of her family’s life. He says he was friends with her deceased son…

But things don’t seem to add up.

And then, when she becomes sexually attracted to him, all bets are off.

When her heart trumps her brain, will she know if she was wrong or will she learn the truth after it’s too late?

To Save Him teaser pic


There was a sadness about Brandon that touched my heart. I could sense that he had so much more to say, but the words couldn’t find a way out. Maybe he needed time, but there was also a chance that those words would be forever buried inside him.

“Brandon, I haven’t been a Christian woman since the day I learned of my son’s death, but it wouldn’t be very Christian or civil of me to turn you away after dark.” I took a deep breath and saw him mustering up an argument, but I began speaking again before he could protest. “Ordinarily, I’d have a guest stay in the extra bedroom, but—if you’d be okay with it—I’d imagine Gabriel would like to have you stay in his room. It’s…been unoccupied for a very long time.”

There was a long pause until JR clamored, “Please?

Brandon’s struggle was evident in his eyes but he said, “That’s very kind of you. I’d…appreciate it more than you know.”

His soul had spoken to me that night. It was the night I fell in love with Brandon Abbott.

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This is a different kind of story from Jade that I was used to. This put the May-June plot in a new light. I was not sure about this one when I first started it but the end I did find there were parts I really enjoyed.

Kimberly Cooper recently lost her son who was serving in the military. While she was still taking care of her other kids she was still morning her late son. She was not able to move on. Then Brandon Abbott showed up on her door step.

Brandon stated he was friends with Kimberly’s deceased son while in the military. Kimberly was having feelings for this your man that she didn’t think she should. However, she gave in and allowed her heart to lead the way. Then her brain caught up and she started questioning if Brandon was who he said he was and if her and her children were safe with Brandon being there. When she started digging Brandon and Kimberly found themselves in a situation where she had to figure out whom she trusted more strangers or Brandon.

When I thought I was going to have an issue with something I kept reading and realized it either helped Kim or Brandon or it helped Brandon remember something new so I didn’t have an issue with it after all thank you Jade C. Jamison for pushing me out of my comfort zone and try something new for me.

Rating: 3.5 rounded up to 4 stars

About the Author


For years, Jade C. Jamison tried really hard to write what she thought was more “literary” fiction, but she found herself compelled to write what you read by her today—sometimes gritty, raw, realistic stories and other times humorous, light tales—but most of the stories she writes revolve around relationships and characters finding their way through life. While she doesn’t confine herself to just one genre, nor is there a nice neat label for what she writes, most of her work could be called erotic romance.

She lives in Colorado with her husband and four children.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

AHH Time Travel plus Historical…yes please!!  Then throw in a pirate annnnd I was a giggle factory!!

SO Lady Evelyn is on a hot, God forsaken island with her father when she gets word she has to go back to England for her wedding…SHEW!!  She is happy to finally get the heck outta the hot tropics for “civilized life” when the ship she is sailing on is boarded by pirates.  Well Captain Jack Morgan (Yup that guy) decides he is going to keep Lady Evelyn and hope to make her is mistress…..now all of this is happening in 1722 while our Hero, Paul’s, story is happening in 1987.

Paul works.  Paul works tooo much when he is forced to take a vacation to help his health. He vacations on a God-forsaken island.  He takes a stroll but gets caught up in a storm when he sees a beautiful woman on the beach. They both run for cover and soon realize that something wonky has happened.  He has some how manage to slip back in time.

The couple fall in love and have to find way to 1987 or figure out what to do in 1722.  The epilogue is a great set up for the other books in the series. Book 2 is their oldest daughter Alys and book 3 is the other daughter Regina!!  I read this series out of order completely and didn’t find it confused me at all.  I read book 3 before book 1 nd m jumping into bok 2 now…LOL  so I would say these are total stand alones.

What happens when an American heiress to a shipping company crosses paths with a pirate?

Miss Prudence Drake desires nothing more than to return to America and pick up the pieces of her life. After being held captive on the Black Dawn and witnessing her papa’s murder, the last thing she wants is to find herself in the hands of another pirate-even if he is handsome and honorable.

Captain Jasper Blackmore has forsaken his past, walking away from England’s shores in search of a new adventure after the war left him physically scarred and jilted by the one lady he dared to love. An American hoyden could never fit into his world despite his attraction to her.

Can two people whose life paths are at odds find common ground?

At the rustle of a key turning in the lock, she let go of the map and turned in the chair to face the entrance. The door swung open and Jasper stared at her. She fought the urge to look away but, instead, met his gaze. It would not kill her to be amiable. Perchance it may even benefit her. “Thank you for sending me the change of clothes.”

“The ship’s gunner will mend your gown so you have it when you depart.”

“That is not necessary. Discard it.” She smiled at the surprise her words ignited in his ice blue eyes. Had he expected her to be vexed over her new wardrobe?

“As you wish.” He leaned his hip on the edge of the desk.

“Can you tell me where we are exactly?” She pointed to America on the map. “I would like to know how far I am from home.”

He glanced from her to the document. “You know how to read maps?”

“I am an educated woman, Captain.”

He chuckled. “I do not doubt it, and, as I told you previously, you have leave to call me Jasper when we’re alone.” A mild irritation laced his voice.

She nodded but had no intention of ever using his given name. The act was far too intimate. He was a pirate for God’s sake. She had no desire to befriend him. Pirates murdered her father and Louisa. She traced the puckered scar on his cheek with her gaze. Had he received any new injuries saving her?

Captain Blackmore murdered the pirates who captured her—avenged her father and rescued her. He risked his life in battle. Still, she could not allow herself to see him as more than the enemy, not even if she wished to.

“It has been my experience that women generally do not read maps. Who taught you?” He opened a drawer and retrieved a bottle of amber-colored liquid along with two glasses.

She watched as he poured some into a glass all the while attempting to decide whether she should answer his question. It would not do for a pirate to know she was a wealthy shipping company owner. She certainly could not allow him to discover that her company was without protection. He must not learn of her father’s death. If he did her company would be vulnerable to him and his crew.

Jasper offered her a glass. “Thirsty?”

“No.” She held up a hand in protest. “Thank you.”

He pressed the glass into her hand anyway. “Have a little. After the day you’ve had, I am sure you are parched. Besides, spirits are good for drowning one’s sorrows.”

She accepted and took a small sip. The liquor burned down her throat but she did not choke on it. “What is it?”

“Brandy. Have you never drank it before?”

“No. I have had watered down wine and champagne on occasion, but Papa never allowed me liquor. It is not proper for a lady to imbibe in stronger drinks, but then I do not suppose a pirate would care about propriety.” Emboldened, she took another sip before setting the glass aside. “Now answer my question. Where are we?”

“What an ursus…umm…whatever you said? I’ve always worked with my hands—I never was a college guy. Didn’t have the patience to sit still in the classroom.” Derek kicked at the ground then looked up.

“No worries.” She snapped her attention back to what he was saying. “Most people don’t know what an ursinologist is—it’s someone who studies bears.”

“Bears, huh?” He shook his head and laughed. “You study bears?”

“What’s so funny?” She crossed her arms. “It’s a valid profession. And I’m doing what I love.”

“Nothing wrong with it, Bria.” He stepped so close to her she had to look up to meet his gaze, and held his hands up in mock surrender. “I think it’s a fine profession, I’ve just never heard of it. It’s a totally new job that I’ve never heard of. Yet here you are in the woods with me, so I guess we aren’t that far apart, career-wise.”

Derek was in her space and even though they weren’t touching, she felt his presence touching hers, like a low-level energy buzzing in the evening air, crackling when hers met his. One step closer and she could pull that hair band out and hop into his arms, straddling him as she kissed him. She shook her head to clear her naughty thoughts. Ugh. Stop. The thoughts about what she’d like to do to the hot park ranger needed to stop. Maybe she’d been out in the sun too long. Normally she didn’t ogle guys. In fact, she couldn’t remember the last time she had. She cleared her throat and took a step back. “I thought you were laughing at me.”

“No. I didn’t know there was a name for someone who studies bears. Plus, the word sounds kinda funny.” He scanned the forest, thumbs in his belt loops. “I guess you’re in the right place to look for bears, though. Especially this deep in the forest. Lots of them live in Deep Creek. They’re everywhere. Probably closer than you think.”

“I hope so.” Her shoulders lowered and she blew out a breath. “Have you seen any this season? I know they are more active in summer. After they’ve woken from hibernation.”

“I see them every day. I’m out in the woods a lot.” He chewed his lip. “They really only partially hibernate, though. But yeah, I guess you could say I’ve seen a lot of bears here in Deep Creek.”

He’d seen bears. Recently. Her pulse thumped in her neck and she leaned forward, as if being near him would make the bears closer. Excitement rang in her ears. “Where? Can you show me, or at least give me some pointers where to look? I can’t wait to see them.”

“My best advice is to keep your eyes open. You never know when a bear will appear right in front of you.”

Waking the Bear

Sexy shifter passion is awakened when two unlikely lovers are challenged by secrets, danger and an unstoppable need to claim one’s mate…

For human Amy Francis, the secluded cabin in Deep Creek is the haven she needs to map out a fresh new start. She never expected her heart to be reawakened by a distraction like Griff Martin, commanding yet gentle, too ferociously sensual to ignore. It’s clear that patrolling the forest is more than a job to Griff—it’s a means of survival. But what Amy doesn’t realize is she’s reawakened the beast within him.

Griff’s dormant hunger is stirred by this intoxicating woman…and threatened by the secret she must never learn. Duty-bound to defend his bear clan against an avenging pride of lion shifters, Griff’s entire world is upended when he meets Amy. His animal need to claim his mate has taken hold, but that very desire could seal her fate as an unwitting pawn in battle.

Now, as a shifter war looms, Griff must decide between letting Amy go or following his most carnal instincts. To have her would change his life…but risk everything he knows and was born to protect.

#review #paranorma #Shifters – Must Love Lions by Alma Black

Must Love Lions (A Shifter Date Paranormal Romance)


Alexis Parrish is very single. Sassy and smart, she’s great at her job as a journalist, but it’s never given her the time to find the right man–specifically, a human. So when she gets assigned to interview Max, a lion shifter, about the new dating app he’s created, she can’t believe her intense attraction to him. After all, humans and shifters don’t date.

Max is used to causing trouble. He broke tradition by creating the dating app, Shifter, which humans and shifters alike can use to answer the call of the wild.

When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she can’t say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she can’t resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.

But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. It’s more than his pride on the line; it’s his mate.

angies review

I received a book from the author for an honest review.

I lurves me some shifters and Lions…Yup don’t think I have read one yet….so this was a definite read for me when the opportunity presented itself.

I loved the unique storyline in the novel.  Alpha Lion Max created a dating app…think Tinder meets Match….to help Shifters and humans find love.  WELLLLLL, not everyone human and shifter is down with the interspecies mingling that is for sure.

Alexis must write an article for her blog about the app.  She goes in wanting to write a paper destroying this app but soon finds herself attracted to the man…shifter…Lion????

The couple have a lot to deal with as far a rogue group of shifters wanting to put a stop to the mingling, his family not approving of him spending time with a human and much more.  The story was good and I was engaged throughout the entire book.  There were parts that seemed a little bit choppy and didn’t flow very well but it didn’t take away from my overall enjoyment of the book.  I am excited to jump into book 2 and will as soon as I aa finished with the review.

#WOTR #Review #ReleaseDay- Size Matters, Perfect Fit Book #1 by Alison Bliss


Size Matters (Size Matters #1)


The rules of (fake) engagement . . .
Leah Martin has spent her life trying to avoid temptation. But she’s sick of low-fat snacks, counting calories, and her hyper-critical mom. Fortunately, her popular new bakery keeps her good and distracted. But there aren’t enough éclairs in the world to distract Leah from the hotness that is Sam Cooper – or the fact that he just told her mother that they’re engaged . . . which is a big, fat lie.

Sam sometime speaks before he thinks. So what started out as defending Leah’s date-ability to her judgmental mother soon turned into having a fiancee! Now the plan is to keep up the fake engagement, stay “just friends,” and make Leah’s family loathe him enough to just call the whole thing off . But Sam has an insatiable sweet tooth, not only for Leah’s decadent desserts but her decadent curves. Her full lips. Her bright green eyes. Yep, things aren’t going quite according to plan. Now Sam has to convince Leah that he’s for real . . . before their little lie turns into one big, sweet disaster.

angies review

I received a paperback ARC for an honest review.  Do you know how hard it is to read a paperback and not crease the bindings??  TOUGH I TELL YA!!  But I did it!!!!

When I saw what the book was about, I was excited.  I have read several books by this author so I knew it was gonna crack me up because her books are full of comedy.  This book did not disappoint and totally had me laughing out loud over the holiday weekend!!

Leah isn’t a size negative 2.  She is a curvy girl who loves herself…kinda…..she loves herself but knows how the outside world, her mom and her ex’s view her – overweight.  When she sees Sam at a bar she is tongue tied when he approaches her but is quickly dismissed by him for small anorexic Barbie.

Sam is over woman…especially crazy ones.  When his friend Max begs him to be a wingman to the curvy bombshell he does so.  He is stunned at his draw to Leah but is a total dick to her because he cannot get sucked into another crazy relationship.

When Sam pushes himself into Leah’s life trying to be a nice guy he soon over steps and pronounces himself to be her fiancée to her mom of all people!!  OOPSIE SAM!!  Well Leah is a mess.  What is she going to do?  Well Sam decides on a plan to make her family hate him. This will force her to dump him…it could work right??  WELL NOPE Seems Leah and Sam start to fall in love but are both getting in each other’s way over it.  Sam won’t admit he cares for Leah.  Not because of her size but just relationship fear over all.  Leah is so in love with Sam but thinks he only thinks of her as a friend because of his hot and cold behavior due to her size

I loved this book and loved the flawed characters.  Leah is so me!!  I mean I felt her insecurities 110%.  Sam is so my husband.  He says the perfect stuff and the not so perfects tuff at the right and wrong times…LOL so that is prolly why I loved his character so much!

about the author

As the youngest of five girls, Alison Bliss has never turned down a challenge…or been called by the right name. Her writing career may have started out as a dare by one of her sisters, but Alison hasn’t put her pen down since.

She grew up on a small island off the Texas Gulf Coast, where most of her childhood vacations consisted of camping or hunting trips to the deer lease. Although she’ll always be a Texan at heart, Alison currently resides in the Midwest with her Iowa farm-boy husband and their two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it’s no wonder she writes “girl books.”

She’s an animal lover, a closet video game enthusiast, and believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it’s obviously meant to be. Alison’s an avid romance reader who enjoys penning the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, “Romance…with a sense of humor.”


#Release Day #Review Ink Exposed (Montgomery Ink Book 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan



The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.

Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes.

Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance.

Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

kristis review

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

If you are a fan of the Montgomery Ink series, I know what you’re thinking, Yay Alex finally get his story!!
If you’ve never read the series once you’ve read Alex, you will love it so be prepared for your brooding men with tattoos lust to begin!!!
Alex is the youngest boy of the Denver Montgomery family, the last few years haven’t been the best for him; broken marriage, destroyed his little sister’s wedding, and went to rehab for his alcoholism.
Tabby, is the executive assistant for the family’s construction firm and runs it like a top, oh and is a honorary member of the Montgomery family.
I love that Ryan made the choice to set Alex’s story a year after the last book, so he’s had a while to get his demons until control and to rebuild his life, a year to be ready to love again.
Tabby has had a crush on Alex for a while and sees that he still doesn’t feel comfortable with his family after the events of the past, and she has a past that no one knows about.
I can’t believe how well these two go together, they’re like each other’s missing piece.
Tabby so understands him and can see what no one else can see with him. Alex learns that yes he screwed things up in the past, but he has to forgive himself like those he loves has, and live again.
Ryan has done a excellent job at showing how addiction can change people, how people deal with it when a family member has a disease such as this, and how a person can come back from the heartache it causes.
Make sure you have tissues handy for this one because Alex and Tabby will wreck you, but the introduction of Tabby’s hot as heck brothers will make it all better. It also doesn’t hurt that Alex has take up fighting, so we get to see his yummy tatted up and sweaty bod in the ring!!
Can’t wait for more Montgomery stories and fingers crossed on seeing more of Tabby’s yummy overprotective brothers.
